The second edition of the Tour de France women will start from Clermont Ferrand this Sunday, July 23.
After the men, the women will be honored on the occasion of the second edition of the Tour de France women. The 2023 edition will leave Clermont-Ferrand on Sunday July 23 to end in Pau a week later. Unsurprisingly, this women's Tour de France should offer a big duel between Annemiek van Vleuten and Demi Vollering. Winner of the Vuelta and the Giro Donne where she flew over the race, the world champion will defend her title during this week, but will have to face her compatriot Demi Vollering, impressive in the classics season.
Among the other names to mention, the French Juliette Labous will be one of the main contenders for the final podium on the side of Pau after her second place on the Giro femmes. In addition to the Frenchwoman, Elisa Longo Borghini, Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig, Marta Cavalli, Lorena Wiebes and Marianne Vos should be underdogs for this race.
Here are the details and the profile of the eight stages of the Tour de France women with the big start planned in Clermont Ferrand and a big loop in the city.
